Laïla

Alvensleben

is Swiss-Syrian and currently in London.

Laïla was never one of those people who only had one passion, and this relentless curiosity was probably born from her uniquely nomadic upbringing.

Having lived in Venezuela, Italy, Kenya and Ghana, she then settled in Switzerland, where she studied and worked in international relations, then interior architecture, then graphic design.

Her journey as a designer began at a human rights film festival in Serbia and continued in Austria, where she worked in communications and advertising. She then moved to Manchester, where she had a life-changing experience at Hyper Island. Her research on remote collaboration led her to join Hanno when she realised it was the perfect team to experiment with Remote Design Thinking.

Today she helps Hanno run user research and testing while delivering online workshops on the fly.
